CEB61           Business Ethics & Leadership


Prerequisites: Admission into Professional Diploma in Business Management

Semester 1: B at L, LAB & LTK                                            Semester 2: Not offered

The issue of ethics (especially in business) gained prominence in the 1980s and 1990s largely in the wake of “deregulation” initiatives pursued by governments worldwide. This arose at a time when shortcomings were increasingly becoming obvious in the market as a regulator of organisational conduct. Focus thus moved to managers/leaders as a key focus of control in decision making. The range and quantity of business ethical issues reflects the interaction of profit-maximising behaviour with non-economic concerns. What exactly makes a decision ethical? The problem with ethics is that what may seem morally right (or ethical) to one person may seem appalling to another. This course will firstly, centralise the role of the leader/manager in decision-making. It then helps define ethical frameworks to make solving ethical dilemmas easier. A number of selected case studies are used to explore the challenges and dilemmas involved in leading an organisation in an ethical manner.


CEB62           Strategic Planning & Risk Management


Prerequisites: Admission into Professional Diploma in Business Management

Semester 1: B at L, LAB & LTK                                            Semester 2: Not offered

Planning is one of the most critical means of fostering the success of an institution and the achievement of its strategic goals. Strategic planning has been defined as “the process of developing and maintaining a strategic fit between the organisation and its changing marketing opportunities” (Kotler and Murphy 1981, p. 471) This definition suggests environmental and resource analyses that allow goals to be set, followed by strategy formulation and systems improvements that lead to better performance at the strategic, tactical and operational levels. There are many external and internal risk factors that, if not carefully managed, can impede the successful accomplishment of an institution’s strategic goals, including changing demographics, developments in the general economy, shifting priorities in government policies, natural disasters, and poor planning and management. Further, failure to strategically manage an institution’s risk can actually compromise its continued financial viability. This course thus focuses on strategic planning and risk management.
